SignUpGenius is an online tool for volunteer organizing and event planning. The service provides nonprofit organizations, schools, businesses and groups with an alternative to “reply-all” emails, phone trees and paper sign ups, and helps visitors sign up for tasks online. SignUpGenius is suitable for groups regardless of their size or operating budget.

Users can choose from various theme templates, and SignUpGenius lets users customize online sign ups to schedule volunteers, fundraise, track volunteer tasks and more. At the same time, email reporting enables coordination by keeping event planners up-to-date on volunteer participation and event details.

Two types of accounts are available: Basic and Pro, which itself comes in three different levels. Pro account users have access to extra features, including custom themes, multiple administrators, no-ads sign ups, volunteer hour tracking/reporting, an email messaging center and more.

Love it!

Pros

Makes volunteering a breeze! You're able to select time slots in real time and see what areas or spots are still vacant.

Cons

The branding could be modernized a little bit, but that's not a big deal and the functionality is amazing.

RSVP For This!

Pros

Great email format for inviting guests and having them confirm attendance. Also like the features of how guests can agree to bring items needed for the event.

Cons

The site looks dated visually. I personally wouldn't have used it if a friend hadn't introduced me to it first.

SignUp Genius for Meals

Pros

Other people have set up a sign up genius for lots of things that I have signed up for and it seems to be a very good way to help organize many people and different schedules

Cons

Ive never made anything on this software and it looks a little intimidating. I also think the look could use a facelift

I love SIgnUpGenius. I use it to organize all kinds of events/meetings at work. It's the best online signup website I've found.

Cons

Great idea!

Pros

This software has allowed me to easily schedule appointments with my daughters school

Cons

Depending on how the user on the other end sets it up I have found some of the information provided to be lacking when signing up for specific time slots.

Great for Schools

Pros

Love that I have several options for what I need to have families sign up for. I can put different schedules, or items we need for events, and we are using it to schedule all conferences. Perfect to help keep track and not double book something.

Cons

I had hoped for a less expensive option, but truly, their pricing is very reasonable for the use you can get out of the product.

So easy to get a group of people with varying schedules on one page!

Pros

I love SignUpGenius! I was able to get a team of 20+ individuals to schedule meetings within three days, choose the availability of three coaches, and blend the two together. It was almost too easy.

Cons

Better calendar/Google calendar integration! Also would like to send a link through text message instead of emails.

Great Product

Pros

This product is great when managing group events or parties. It is easy to use and provides you with the information in a manner that is easy to understand.

We currently support uploading email addresses from Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, Windows Live accounts, Outlook and CSV files. If your emails are not in an address book or are in an address book that is not supported, we recommend that you export the email addresses into Excel from your mail program. You can then copy the column of email addresses and paste them into the SignUpGenius input box. Please make sure you copy email addresses only with no names. It is also not required to send invites directly via our site. You can choose to take the sign up live without sending emails, and instead, copy the link to the sign up and send invites from your own email program. You can also post the link on your organization's website or share the sign up via social media. If you have any questions about importing emails, please contact the Support Team.

Great potential but...

Pros

This is the system my child’s teacher uses to reach out the parents to volunteer supplies to send in. Pretty neat opportunity. Upon opening the app, I was instantly given access to the ongoing list without having to sign up. It was convenient but I’m not sure if it was a fluke or if the teacher set it up that’s way.

Cons

It was not as smooth for me to navigate as I expected it to be. I was not given an opportunity to input what I had to offer. There was no notification of the status of the list. I reached out to the teacher for help but was told that the list was complete. I’m assuming that once the signup process is done, the app gives no option to enter info.

Great for Potlucks and Calendar Sign ups

Very good, easy way to get information out to a large group of people and then for them to see and coordinate schedules/information.

Pros

That you can easily pick a date to sign up for and then enter the appropriate information needed. You can send this to multiple people and they all have access to the Sign-up genius. Makes signing up and keeping information together very easy

Cons

You have to have a log in to actually sign up within SignUpGenuis

Great customer service

The genius prevents overbooking of our small yoga studio.

Pros

We are a user of the free option and I deleted the link by mistake. The customer service was really wonderful, especially given that we aren't even paying customers.

Cons

There have been some improvements that we're a bit hard to navigate.

SignUpGenius Review

SignUpGenius helped me effectively and easily run a volunteer group supporting a homeless shelter.

Pros

This software/service made planning ongoing events incredibly easy. It's sign-up forms are direct and effective, and it's auto reminders are both easy to use for both the administrator and the users (having received both!). With a free plan for users to experience, this is a fantastic service to get familiar with.

Cons

The only cons I have experienced are cosmetic. However, the setup and design features weren't part of the plan I purchased, and so this really shouldn't be viewed as a negative - only a possible reason to upgrade your plan.

Easy to sign up for appointments/events

Pros

We use it to sign up for shifts. I like that it is user-friendly and that you can easily select time slots.

Cons

It isn't the most innovative program out there. It is basically a step up from something like Doodle.

Perfect for setting up meeting time slots

Pros

Love how easy it was for me to send this to employees and have them sign up for time slots to meet with me so timing matched up.

Cons

Sometimes time difference messed with the system and messed up call times.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I'll be happy to help you advise your participants on how to change the time zone setting on their account profile. The default for the account is found by clicking Settings from the upper right side of the account page. Next, choose the tab for Other. Remember to select Update Settings to save these changes. When your participants view the account page, the events they have signed up for will now reflect the correct time zone for where they are located. If you have additional questions, please contact our Support Team: support@signupgenius.com.

Sign Up Genius Review

Pros

The ease and functionality of it and how it saves me hours of time on the phone. It is easy to sign up, make changes and I don't have to wait for people to get back with me to get on the schedule. Being able to have multiple administrators is worth the cost of membership.

Cons

The dashboard and actual sign up page look a little outdated and somewhat cluttered.

Excellent event organization system, despite somewhat clunky interface

Overall, and despite some minor issues, its a very good format to organize your next office event or team part. Might be useful especially with the holiday season coming up!

Pros

The setting up of events and sign up categories is excellent and allows for our team events and office get togethers to be arranged very well, and for everyone coming and what they're bringing to be known beforehand.

Cons

The interface at some areas is clunky, as in when setting up some items such as customized images and party invites or backgrounds, its not entirely simple at first. Also the setting up of guest lists and party item options to be signed up to bring sometimes is not straightforward. Its not dire but is worth mentioning.

A godsend!

My League of Women Voters chapter used this to sign up registrars for voter registration events. Some days we had multiple events with different numbers needed. Prior to SignUpGenius, this was a nightmare process. This app saved our sanity!

Pros

The ease of set-up, the fact that everyone can go back to see who signed up, and the reminders! Plust the technical support amazingly timely and helpful!!!

Cons

When members of my group were on someone else's group previously, it was confusing and didn't allow me to enter their name with their email.

Great for churches

Pros

It is easy to get a sign-up up and going when we need to have our church members sign up to provide meals. We recently used it for a grieving family and it helped us organize meals!

Cons

I don't know if I have anything we like least about the software!
